      I appears that cosmo has a compressed disk. No wonder you have been cranky. Just rub some Zeobak on that area and everything will be fine

                    Sean,I have a choice.Getting rods and cages put in or just stay like this.The surgury may not relieve any pain but will keep it from getting any worse.I don't really know what to do yet.This will be my 3rd surgery

                      Just remember if it gets too much worse there maybe no way to partially reconstruct that area. Just looking at those MRI's makes my back hurt

                      I hear ya

                          Oh a good 15 years

                          I want to do Pediatric Heart's so I have to specialize for a while. I was told by some docs to expect to about 7 years after med school till I can actually have my own practice.

                          Trauma would be pretty interesting too though.

                          But definitely not bones, I looked right over your disk a good 5 times.

                          I'll be a PA(Physician Assistant) before I become an MD; Looks like I may go into the Naval Reserves to be a Marine Corpman (Field Surgeon).

                            Three more years, but Ill be a D.P.T (Doctor of Physical Therapy) not an M.D. I dont want to be 35 before I start to make some real money I also dont want to get into that whole area of M.D. vs Isurance companies
